I love a well read babe

When you want to cry…

A little life.

Four friends in New York city with nothing but each other and decades of darker things to come.


When you want to laugh…

‘Everything I know about love’ 

Turns out Dolly Alderton doesn’t know too much and that might just be the entire point.


When you want a hug that feels like home…

‘The kids are alright’

Mega babe Patti Smith talks about her relationship with Photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in New York. Things get dirty. I make a surprise cameo. Ok so the last bit is made up but it’s a good read when you’re with me.


When you’re questioning everything so what’s another ‘thing’

‘Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman.’

 #letsbefrank, you don’t really need a book to tell you to  be whoever you want to be, however you want to be it but this one’s a good reminder.


When you don’t know what you want…

‘The Catcher in the Rye’ 

Holden isn’t the easiest teenager but in 48 hours he manages to get kicked out of boarding school, wonder the city, get into a fight, meet a lady on the street, break into a building, see a therapist and talk about phoneys. The best kind of book about growing up even when you aren’t sure exactly what that means.


When you want something dirty…
